This year’s Migration is being held at the incredible Green Valley Ranch in Henderson, NV (Las Vegas). Las Vegas and the Green Valley Ranch offers an extraordinary selection of dining, shopping and recreation options to enjoy before, during, and after COPA Migration.

Some Highlights (More can be found at the new migration website):

  • Annual Meeting: Friday morning will start with our annual board meeting where you can come and hear the Board report on COPA’s operations and vote for board members. We then have several plenary presentations before breaking out in our typical sessions.
  • **Sessions: **We are bringing in a different set of educational speakers this year, many from recommendations from the membership. As usual there will be dual tracks on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. You won’t want to miss out on these education filled sessions. Check out the list of speakers here: More to come and will announce as they are added.
  • Tradeshow: The Tradeshow just keeps getting better and better. Sold out for Three years in a row, we attract vendors of the latest and greatest Cirrus and general aviation gear and gadgets. And don’t forget to bring your shopping list for the Cirrus Store!
  • Spouses Program: For those wanting a break from the COPA immersion, we are offering an Exclusive tour of the Bellagio Fountains and a custom run show just for our group. The experience will start with lunch at Lago, the first Italian restaurant from James Beard Award winner Chef Julian Serrano featuring the modern concept of small plates.

-Your Migration Team!

I just signed up along with my wife. I think I may be one of the first! The sure sign of a new Cirrus Owner who is much too enthusiastic (grin). See you all there! Chuck[Y]

Many, many thanks to the Migration team for getting M16 Registration open. Very special thanks to Erik Gundersen who labored hours and hours to develop the new website for us and was pretty much responsible for getting the site ready. And thanks to Kim Blonigen for lots of proofing and editing! It is volunteers like Erik and Kim that make COPA such a special place.

Excited to attend my first one !

Really, really, really looking forward to this! I’m still debating whether I want to spend a bunch of days flying the SR22 to Vegas from NC, or just go commercial. If I was attending solo I think I’d be leaning towards the trek, but since the wife will be joining me, I’m leaning towards commercial.

I’ll caravan with you. I’ve done that trip. NC to Kansas or so to Pueblo to Vegas and we take Victors at 16 or 16.5 bring your cannula!

Me too Scott… we’re signed up

My wife and I are registered as well!

We too are considering if we will fly commercial, or fly our SR22 out there yet…but we have time to decide!


What are the 4 blank lines on the “see who’s attending page”


The blanks on that page:

Are some of the vendors that registered.

The filter set for that page is currently including some of them. I will change the filter once at a desktop so it only shows members not vendors.

Please note this link is only members who have opt in to listing their name on the list, which is optional during registration.

Thanks for asking and pointing out! Lots is settings to go though… still some improvements to be had.

Might it also make sense to list total number registered and total number displayed…, if they are different… i.e. count the number not wishing to be displayed just as a whole number so we can know how many are registered

ex. 16/20 displaying 16 of 20




To all of our aviation friends. Do you love airplanes? Is flying a passion for you? Are you a Cirrus Aircraft fan? Heck, give us a try. come join us for the party. We are ready to rock n’ roll again in Las Vegas. BTW, share this link. We’d love to see you all.

Is anyone planning to bring their kids to Migration?

I have two - son (will be 11 by Oct) and daughter (will be 6). I need to do something with them while there - can hire a nanny to take them to the pool etc. I was thinking that they could have more fun if there were other kids around.

The hotel that is hosting our event (Green Valley Ranch) is a beautiful one with multiple pools. A call to the hotel will provide the answers that you seek. Also, here is a link:


Thanks for the recommendation.

It seems the event registration provider we are using is unable to publish the report in this way. I tried and also asked the support team.

Just got room booked, looking forward to the event! Will arrive early for the engine maintenance class. Spouse will be handling the slots!


Scott: Hi. My wife has already decided that she is taking over all the slots so maybe your wife can use them when she takes a break (grin). See you there! Chuck


Sounds more like we pair them up and let them bring down the house at the slots! I’ll be lucky to see my wife by dinner…Lol


Scott: Are we married to the same woman? I’ll have to check my marriage license (grin). It should be a lot of fun. I’m signed up for the maintenance program so I’ll see you there. Chuck
